Isole Augusta | DOC Brut Millesimato | 2017
Have you ever tried Prosecco from one harvest before? This is a vintage prosecco, made in a Brut style, so nice and dry.Very clean, aromatic nose filled with baked strawberries and red liquorice.
Creamy, soft and plush mouth-feel; 'marshmallow-like' in texture. Finishes clean and fresh, ready for another Pair with fresh strawberries and cream.
Massimo Bassani is a winegrower who closely follows modern wine technology, but at the same time, remains faithful to tradition and to the spontaneous suggestions of the earth. He interprets these suggestions, between the vineyards and the cellar, not with indulgence, but with the intransigence and attention towards ancient winemaking, yet carried out according to the most modern criteria.
Nothing is left to chance, yet it is not forced, to obtain from the clay soils of Isola Augusta, young wines that are both modern and traditional, inviting wines. In other words, wine which is able to seduce and enchant the palates of the young and not so young in equal measure.
100% Glera | Made using the 'Charmat method' where secondary ferment takes place inside enormous stainless steel tanks and then bottled | 750ml | 11.5% abv

90 points! Pretty floral little thing with sweet green apple and lemon barley. Perky and lightly frothy in the mouth, a little sweetness lending a kind of barley sugar flavour, then a finish that turns dry and gently saline. Nicely done. Refreshing. Gary Walsh, WineFront.com.au
